Nick Cannon Says He Would Never Judge Someone On How Many Kids They Have

“I would just be a hypocrite to the whole thing," Cannon said during a YouTube Live chat

Nick Cannon is expounding on his opinion about monogamy and is letting it be known that he would never judge someone for how many kids they have.

In an interview with Dr. Tammy Nelson, author of Open Monogamy and a resident sex therapist from the dating site Ashley Madison, Cannon answered honestly on the topic of being open to dating a woman who “has the same amount of kids or baby fathers” as he does.

“My lifestyle only merits me to respect someone ... I would just be a hypocrite to the whole thing. Now, am I going to I say I like it? Would I choose that? We also don't really choose who we love or where our emotions take us,” he said, adding that he has been involved with “women who have 4, 5, 6 children in a household at the same time.”

He continued, “And it's been some of the most lucrative and strong friendships and passionate relationships that I've ever had, because … I would never judge someone based off of the amount of children they had. Especially when they're a great parent.”

Cannon was previously married to Grammy Award-winning singer Mariah Carey from 2008 to 2016. They share 11-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan.

Back in June 2021, Cannon welcomed twins Zion and Zillion with Abby De La Rosa. The following month, the Wild ‘N Out creator had a son Zenwho died on Dec. 5 after being diagnosed with a brain tumor — with Alyssa Scott.

Cannon is also the father to 5-year-old Golden and 18-month-old Powerful Queen with Brittany Bell. He is currently expecting a baby boy with Bre Tiesi.
